    I'm around 6'0 170, and I wear a size 10 shoe which I think is pretty small for my height? What kind of shoes will appear to be longer/bigger (not bulkier) but still fit snug?

    Size 10 is not big for your height.

    You want to appear to have longer feet? That's just an old wive's tale. [​IMG]

    I'm assuming you meant small.

    I'm 6'0 and wear a size 10. I guess sometimes I think some of my shoes look small but I'm pretty sure no one else does.

    If this all that you have left to worry about in terms of your appearance, you have arrived.

    When I look down at my low chucks, I feel like i'm seeing clown feet. I can't stand to wear them because of that. So, that may be a benefit for you.

    I bought some Paul Smith Starrs and they looked like clown shoes on me, maybe that's what you want.

    Buy a shoe that has an elongated last in your true size. I have the opposite problem (6' and size 11.5~12), so this is what I avoid doing.

    You can try trimming down your pubic hair, or losing some weight around your gut.

    oh wait, you said feet

    I am a bit taller but this ^ is basically me -- you are totally normal, go worry about something else. Short people with huge feet are the ones who have a situation to work around.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about but Tricker's boots and bluchers always make my feet look bigger. Sierra Trading Post is having a sale on a few models.

    I'm 6' 1" and I wear size 9; I don't think 10 is small at all!
